Chicken and Sweet Potato Chowder


I signed up on the Land-O-Lakes website and found a great recipe. I have been looking for some good fall recipes, and this was a great one. We have a Soup Swap at my church's mom's group next month, and I decided I'll be making this one! The whole family loved it, including my often finicky toddler son.

  • 2 T butter
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut
  • 1 to 2 cans of chicken broth
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 1 t thyme
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 1 cup Half & Half
  • 2 T flour

  • Melt butter in pan and add garlic and celery. Cook until tender.
  • Add sweet potatoes, chicken broth, garlic and thyme leaves. Cook until mixture boils and potatoes are tender (10 to 15 minutes).
  • Stir in chicken and paprika.
  • In small bowl, combine half and half with flour until smooth. Gradually add mixture to pan stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened (6 to 8 minutes).

Serve and enjoy! We had ours with oyster crackers.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. This looks really good! I love good soups.
    I don't know if you use barley, but I've found that it's a good addition to most soups and it makes them even more hearty and filling. It's good for you too! :)

  2. Thanks Tea! I love this idea. I bought a box of Barley a long time ago and never used it since I hadn't figured out just where and when to use it. This is a great idea!
